He usually has some nice stuff as well, get in first though before he starts falling behind in the postage... The Snarfquest book bought me up.. I don't know about Unique... Larry drew a pic in all Snarfquest rpg books that were pre ordered through his web page (I bought one because of this...) I can't remember seeing one for sale though...

No. You get in there and chargeback. Sting him before he starts stinging everyone. That way he loses stock and money, and when this guy realises there's no proffit to be had in sccrewing everyone on eBay, he'll quit and not come back.

I agree with BC....it sure looks like the guy.  But he can't do squat anymore.....the game has changed. If the moron doesn't ship your stuff, you can chargeback, and hammer the guy with neg feedback WITHOUT any repercussions.  He can't "sting" anyone anymore, the entire ebay thing is now rigged exactly against guys who pulled this crap (take your money and never ship).  He has all the menace of a toothless old dog.

Chances are that being a new seller, paypal will hold the money in the paypal account until you leave positive feedback as well.

I thought they only did that for electronic goods an that. Didn't realise they could do that in our market.

:lol:  ROFLMAO  :lol:

That reminds me of something I did to jonXXXX whatever this guy's last eBay ID was. I went down his BIN list and bought everything from him one day, and ticked the box to say I'd sent him a cheque.  :lol:  He e-mailed me three days later to say eBay hit him with $240 in fees and had taken it out of his bank account already, and could I agree to not proceed with the sale so he could have his fees reversed. It was a laugh. I guess you had to be there.  :lol:

The guy really is a first grade eBay fraudster, and eBay weren't gonna do a thing about him. I hit him in his pocket. It was hilarious.  :lol:

I have had this happen every time I sell "virtual" goods. I haven't had it happen otherwise.

You could have some situation where you sell a bunch of stuff and Paypal holds the $$$ but then the seller (claiming he's broke) could say he can't afford to ship the stuff. No?

I am convinced now more than ever:


** expired eBay auction **


And errrrr:

"Thanks to ebayer Aneoth...I would like to direct all D&D fans to www-acaeum-com! The best D&D websight I have ever seen!! I was told that shipping out of the US can be very expensive...so International bidders please keep this in mind. I can only accept Paypal at this time, hope thats not a problem."

That seems like an odd move to be directing buyers here.  Even if it weren't the con-man in question, why direct anyone to a site that even speculates that you may be a crook?

I am assuming it's a lame attempt to act "ignorant" of the site, even though everyone who has been here through the previous incarnations, knows this is bullshit.

He even signed up here before and tried to defend himself, a few years ago.

profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=231

I found it interesting though, that Aneoth would be the one directing him here since he himself has been around for several of these previous incarnations and should KNOW by now this guys history and yet still not only directed him here again and but also has bid on his stuff already. Thus the   :? in my previous post. I am just wondering if this is kind of like the Cougarrinard thing a couple of weeks ago.  I'll leave it at that.



And, just as a refresher to those who for whatever reason might think that this guy got a raw deal or some such nonsense in the past, here is some of the feedback of some of his most "successful" previous incarnations:

feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?View ... llFeedback

feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?View ... ;items=200

feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?View ... hest%21%21

ETA: It should be pointed out that Ebay has removed all the retaliatory negatives this guy has left over the course of several User IDs.  I had forgotten that they did that for a period of time for users who went NRU but I don't think they do it any more.  

Regardless, this guy was as bad if not worse than Cougar for leaving retaliatory negs when Sellers were still allowed to do so.

I don't see any reason not to buy from this guy in his early phase of development. Firstly, he has a record of always shipping promptly for while in order to build his feedback reputation. Secondly, his stuff tends to be of good quality and lower in price than it otherwise wood be, because of all the cautious bidding and known history. Thirdly, whatever happend, if you buy on a credit card and through PayPal you are covered if your package doesn't arrive as described. Buying from him seems like a prudent investment this early in his cycle.

Yes, they are suspected of being the newest id of a seller with a poor track record.

A quick recap: He sells and delivers nice RPG items for a while.  Eventually the "delivery" part falls from the previous sentence, and he disappears.  Then he re-appears, only to be spotted by bclarkie.  Perhaps we should name each year for his new eBay name.   :)

It's weird/interesting that a lot of scammers just aren't smart enough to realize that many of their habits/routines act as a signature for purposes of detection.

I mean, really, if I were JonB, the absolute last thing I'd do is use underscores yet again for my user ID. Then again, I guess we're not discussing a future quantum physicist here ...
